Tasting at Matt’smcberko (20857) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 21, 2016
Cloudy dark blond color. The combination of Brett and wine barrel is very funky and very nice, in the aroma, with character, zest, and fruity notes. Dry, smooth mouthfeel; very funky flavor, plenty of orange zest, and strong astringency in the final.
330mL bottle, pours a cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma is very unusual, with loads of perfume but in a good way, along with red wine and lightly funky brett. Flavour is fairly messy but intriguing, with low-medium funky brett, woody red wine notes, and perfume. Low hoppiness, except maybe a touch of an astringency on the finish. Interesting stuff. I dig it. Oakes (19908) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 15, 2016
Bottle. Cloudy, tan, not much head. Orangey, Earl Grey nose with both bergamot and tea tannins. Intense, lots of bitterness, some tannic notes, orangey flavours - but no guava. Yeasty, bitter finish, maybe a touch of brett. This is more complex than the regular (which I had recently on tap) but I wouldn’t pin down the red wine barrel. It’s more of a je ne sais quoi type of thing. Very good. Ferris (18229) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 21, 2016
Bottle - Lots of floral notes, light herbal and Woody notes. Cloudy gold with a frothy white head. Bitter and sweet with lots of Woody notes. Odd. Sammy (13348) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 9, 2017
Wierd funky. Rather extreme bretty character and funk, not so good for me. Tea and then hops. Some colour to a medium yellow. Thanks Bram. So-so drinkability, I am glad this is a share. i would not cook with this.

At Ratebeer Best. Pours cloudy gold with a tiny white head and a citrus aroma. There is a hearty pale malt flavor with a dry slightly bitter finish. DuffMan (10983) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 12, 2016
Bottle, from SlovakSniper-- thanks Pat! Hazy medium orange gold, lively white head. Interesting funk and floral perfume (lavender?) character, more dry than bitter. Very cool twist on the base beer. czar (9971) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 12, 2016
pours hazy light golden, pink hue, with a small but nice off-white cap offering some retention and small creamy lacing. lots of vinous notes - obvious red wine with a pinot noir mineral acidity; letheary bretts, perfumey bergamot, lemon/citrus oïl, fruity marzipan golden maltiness, salt. moderate carbonation, light body - oily; aggressively bitter/tannic spicy-resinous finish. tasty red wine yet its overly bitter/tannic/astringent components dominate. i enjoy a lot more regular leo. bytemesis (9809) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - AUG 7, 2016
Bottle thanks to Youri! Pours hazy orange, small white head, good lacing. Aroma is certianly full of Brett notes, musty basements, clean and lacking that distracting cheese quality of some strains. Vinous, red wine notes prominent, oak tannins, caramel malts. Flavor is light tart, medium funk, light residual bitterness. Medium body. Pretty tasty. tom10101 (6373) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 10, 2016
Bottle (341 ml) at home. Thanks to whatup14 for this one! Slightly hazy golden-orange with a small to medium white head, moderate retention, leaving some lacing. Aroma is of perfumy red wine, resinous hops, dusty brettanomyces, fun floral/tea presence that is still surprinsingly there despite barrel-aging as well as grapefruits and oak spiciness. Taste is quite floral with resinous notes, red wine, mild dusty brettanomyces, mild oak spiciness and moderate to medium grapefruits and resinous bitterness. Medium body. Medium carbonation, but softer than the regular Leo’s. A bit tannic mouthfeel. Resinous and grapefruits finish that lingers quite a bit. It’s very good, but the bitterness is a bit too much for the overall profile of this beer I think. It could evolve nicely though.
